Today at the Asian session,the cross made a high at 1.4970. All the given targets have been hit. We minted 400 pips in this cross. Today, the pair managed to trade above 100Dsma and 100Dema. We expect today the cross can touch around 1.5000 levels. On the downside, the pair probably made a double bottom around 1.4706 and changed the direction. We recommend moving the TSL to 1.4700 from earlier sl 1.4170 with a new target at 1.5200. 20wsma is found at 1.4835. For bulls, to regain the new strength and to make new highs, they must close above 1.4835 20Wsma. Fresh buying is advised above 1.5000 or sue a dip to buy again.
Trade: Target revised at 1.5200.
